Just got this last week from Amazon for $75. Haven't opened it yet.
Sorry if this question has been answered -- so "Berkeley" is actually San Jose. Is the circulating full-band set a dub from Ginsberg's tape (or a dub of a dub of a dub, etc.), or is it a different source altogether? There might not be a way to easily tell, I suppose.
It's not a different source altogether.
I meant '66. There was a fair bit of emotion listening to SF just out of the blue like that, so I may have been a little excited when writing that...definitely a great last harp solo on SF Tam Man but I don't think anything can really, actually rival Sheffield '66.
Another thread for the '65 shows was started here:-
Bob Dylan Live 1965 (USA tour)
I stumbled on a May 14, 1966 Ornette Coleman recording from Manchester Free Trade Hall. 3 days before the Dylan "Judas" show. The OC show was apparantly some sort of FM broadcast. I sampled it, and I believe I can hear the same acoustics as the Dylan show. Pretty cool. I'm sure there are other notable recordings from the same venues/same week as this tour - but I've never noticed.
So presumably, back in 1970/71 we could have worked out that the bootleg wasn't really recorded at the Albert Hall...
Maybe, if the Coleman recording was well known - perhaps someone could've pleaded the case that the sound of music bouncing off wood sounds similar....kind of a stretch, yet totally appropriate in the Dylan mythos.
For those following the saga of the Ginsberg tapes, rumor has it that they're circulating online as of a few hours ago. I can neither confirm nor deny. Also, I'm assuming that I'm not breaking any rules by bringing this up -- if I am, I apologize and this can be taken down.
Great couple of days for us Dylan fans - @kuddukan started this thread recently. Not an amazing performance, but one that I hope turns up in a more complete form and will be of interest to just about everyone on this thread:
Bob Dylan "Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts" 1976 Live Audio Clip?
Integrating the newly-circulating 1965 material into my Dylan iTunes playlist and figured I should tighten up a few other things. Can anyone tell me what got mislabeled in the Live 1966 box and what I should swap, label-wise? I tried looking earlier in this thread but got confused!
From memory it's Like A Rolling Stone from Newcastle and Cardiff that need to be swapped over - someone will correct me if I'm wrong. I think that's the only change to make.
I have a huge collection of all the bits circulating that were missed out, and a few better audience sources too, if anyone knows where I can find 4GB of hosting space or so.
That "swapping out this song or that song" nonsense is not canon. The '66 box set is the source. I think they know the dates.
Did you see the posts that originally made this argument? Very persuasive (at least to me) evidence was presented. I'd link to it, but this thread is incredible long and I don't have the links handy right now. Anyone?
In short, it wasn't just some guy saying "my ears tell me this is wrong!"
Frankly, based on the tape boxes we've seen, I'm surprised there hasn't seemed to have been more mix-ups.
That's a steal.
Official releases never make mistakes
I remember it well. Turned up on the Isle of Wight on 31 August 1969 only to find that the concert had been recorded on the previous day***.
(***According to the official release, anyway...)
Try and synchronise the "Newcastle" Like A Rolling Stone with the Newcastle Like A Rolling Stone, officially released on the No Direction Home DVD, and then tell me which of the two official releases is wrong.
Frankly, I'm impressed at how they managed to switch those audiences so quickly between songs.
BTW, I don't remember seeing you there the following day...
I was in disguise.
And 48 years younger.
Don't remind me. Everything's been a little upside down since...
Yes, but you were so much older then. You're younger than that now.
